Cue Sheet

OPENER    Basic

Circle left
It seems like yesterday
But it was long ago

Men star right
Left allemande and weave the ring
And the secrets that we shared
The mountains that we moved
Caught like a wildfire out of control
Till there was nothing left to burn and nothing left to prove


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru
Dosado
Swing thru, boys run
Ferris wheel, pass thru
Touch 1/4, scoot back
Swing and promenade
We were runnin' against the wind
We were young and strong, we were runnin' against the wind


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
*And I remember what she said to me
*How she swore that it never would end
*I remember how she held me oh so tight
*Wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then

Allemande and weave
Against the wind
We were runnin' against the wind
We were young and strong, we were runnin' against the wind


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Well those drifters days are past me now
*I've got so much more to think about
*Deadlines and commitments
*What to leave in, what to leave out


TAG

Well I'm older now and still against the wind

Against The Wind
 
 

It seems like yesterday
But it was long ago
Janey was lovely, she was the queen of my nights
There, in the darkness with the radio playing low
And the secrets that we shared
The mountains that we moved
Caught like a wildfire out of control
'Til there was nothing left to burn and nothing left to prove
And I remember what she said to me
How she swore that it never would end
I remember how she held me oh so tight
Wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then

Against the wind
We were runnin' against the wind
We were young and strong, we were runnin'
Against the wind

The years rolled slowly past
And I found myself alone
Surrounded by strangers I thought were my friends
I found myself further and further from my home
And I guess I lost my way
There were oh so many roads
I was living to run and running to live
Never worried about paying or even how much I owed
Moving eight miles a minute for months at a time
Breaking all of the rules that would bend
I began to find myself searching
Searching for shelter again and again

Against the wind
A little something against the wind
I found myself seeking shelter against the wind

Well those drifter's days are past me now
I've got so much more to think about
Deadlines and commitments
What to leave in, what to leave out

Against the wind
I'm still runnin' against the wind
I'm older now but still runnin' against the wind
Well I'm older now and still runnin'
Against the wind
Against the wind
Against the wind

Still runnin'
I'm still runnin' against the wind
I'm still runnin'
I'm still runnin' against the wind
Still runnin'
Runnin' against the wind
Runnin' against the wind
See the young man run
Watch the young man run
Watch the young man runnin'
He'll be runnin' against the wind
Let the cowboys ride
Let the cowboys ride
They'll be ridin' against the wind
Against the wind ...

Lyrics by Bob Seger.
Recorded by Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band.
